Famous quotes containing the words brigade, horse and/or light:

    Rational free spirits are the light brigade who go on ahead and reconnoitre the ground which the heavy brigade of the orthodox will eventually occupy.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    TAKE CARE TO SELL YOUR HORSE BEFORE HE DIES
    THE ART OF LIFE IS PASSING LOSSES ON.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The light of memory, or rather the light that memory lends to things, is the palest light of all.... I am not quite sure whether I am dreaming or remembering, whether I have lived my life or dreamed it. Just as dreams do, memory makes me profoundly aware of the unreality, the evanescence of the world, a fleeting image in the moving water.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
